Non-Citizen Voting Rights

Very interesting. I also think that a non-citizen voting might draw the attention of ICE. I personally know a person from Tibet who has lived in Vermont for 18 years and is currently facing deportation. In my opinion, it more important that they obtain citizenship and if the Progressives want to capture more of the the immigrant vote they should concentrate on helping more people to become citizens rather than trying to use it as a divisive political wedge.
